Faronics, an industry leader in cost reducing IT solutions, today announced the release of Anti-Executable 4. The latest version of the award-winning application whitelisting software offers improved flexibility for administrators and users controlling workstations and servers. There is also expanded reporting and visibility for files and applications. Anti-Executable halts even the most advanced malware threats, such as zero day and targeted attacks including spear phishing, by only allowing approved applications to run on a computer. Any other programs—whether they are unwanted, unlicensed, or simply unnecessary—are blocked from ever executing.
Included in the release is Faronics Identifile, a feature that checks files against a signature database and reports on manufacturer name, file hash, version, and whether the file is malicious. This facilitates improved workstation protection through a stronger understanding of files and their properties.
